    Hi. Has anyone been on a Crossings Motorhome Tour? If so, how did you get on?
    Although we enjoy travelling around Europe on our own or with friends we thought we would give this company a try. We went with GB Privilege to Germany a few years ago and had a good time and have kept in touch with some of the others that we met ever since.
    This time we are joining ten other vans on a tour to Provence in June. Are you one of them?
    Regards.

    Yes, we are one of them. We went to meet Bob and Wendy at the NEC as we had just booked the first place to Provence. They are really lovely people and we're really looking forward to going in June and meeting you and the other 8 travellers. We booked as the RV is the first motorhome we've bought and were a little nervous about travelling in Europe for the first time.

    Hi both. Good to hear from you. That's a biggie to start with!!
    You will be well looked after so nothing to do but follow the guidelines and enjoy the trip.
    One thing I found some of the other "novices" were unaware of on our GB trip was the need to take an electrical polarity tester and a "change polarity" cable or device with you just in case we end up at a badly wired campsite somewhere on the trip.
    As you say, looking forward to meeting up with everyone. Won't be long now.

    Thanks for the tip on the polarity tester, I'll get one just in case. Let's see if any other funsters are part of the trip

    Recieved our travel pack today. Sites all booked, Routes worked out, both Toll and non Toll, having said that we don't have to follow them. Good advice about what to take and what to expect.
    Looking forward to meeting up with Allan and Loren too. :hi:

    Hi, never been on a tour but we bumped into this couple on a site in amsterdam last week. They seem lovely and friendly. One of their group had a van with xxxx FUN reg plate.
    Am sure you will have a great time.

    Really interested to see how you both go on.
    Although we've been to France in the car we have yet to take the mh and tbh I think Les is a bit apprehensive about it......something like this may be the answer...

    This type of tour seems to suit both beginners and old hands alike. Our trip with GB Privilege had more organised visits than this one but it cost double the amount. We found it gave the newby's a good start and with many around to give advise and help. The best bit was we met nice people and have kept in touch with many of them, intact there are a few of us all meeting up again behind the Rodney Stoke Inn this coming weekend......:drink::beerchug::wine::cheers:

    We've not been abroad with the RV yet, only caravans and pre booked to stay in one main site. Loved the idea of touring but a bit apprehensive for the first time. We met Bob and Wendy at the nec after finding their company on google search. Loved the Provence tour itinerary and the fact that we can either join in or be left to do our own thing but all the time with the experience of Bob and Wendy to call on if needed. Can't wait to go.

    We met Bob & Wendy as well in October 2013 at the NEC Birmingham and liked them very much. We had thought about going to France and I was feeling a bit ginger about it, so thanks for raising this, we will definitely consider this option. :LOL:
